Now had 2 dvd DL burners not recognising dvd's or cds unless?

hi all

I’m new to Cd freaks pleased to meet yous all :wink:

I’m having a problem with my dvd DL writer.

basically i had a SONY DL DVD writer now bought a LITE On DVD DL Writer but getting the same problem

when i insert a cd (audio/Blank/Data) or dvd basically any media type its not recognized.

so I’ve found a way of getting it recognized. i have to go in to device manager and scan for hardware changes and then only then is the media I’ve inserted recognized by the writer?

surely i should have to do this every time. is there a tweak i’ve got to do to put this right???

its only been happening the last couple of weeks before that it was working fine?

I’m on XP Pro by the way with a dual core intel motherboard and chip.

hope you can help
